Pump units

KAR-Lehtonen designs and manufactures pump units for the versatile needs of industry. We provide high-quality pumping solutions for the transfer of oil products, chemicals, and other liquids. All our equipment is also available with ATEX approval.

Design expertise and customer-specific customization are at the core of our operations. Pump units are typically set to a flow of 10–2000 l/min, but can be manufactured even more efficiently if necessary. They are completely adapted to the customer’s needs, including size and
components, including valves and connector types.

We have been delivering our high-quality pump solutions to our customers in the Nordic and Baltic countries for over thirty years. Thanks to our long experience, we are closely familiar with the specific requirements of industries of our customers, which enables us to offer expert solutions
– from design to installation, from purchasing spare parts to maintenance.

High quality – versatile additional features

It is important for us to provide our customers with high quality, both in terms of components and production expertise. As proof of a high-quality and controlled manufacturing process, our operations are certified in accordance with the EN ISO 3834-2 standard.

The same device can be used to pump from several different tanks to several different destinations. Thanks to efficient compressed-air discharge, the product being pumped can also be replaced flexibly. KAR-Lehtonen manufactures both fixed and effortlessly mobile pump units.

Versatile additional features ensure full performance for the pumps, for different needs and weather conditions. Our pumps can be fitted with, for example, a heating system to heat bitumen up to +150 °C. When pumping water, it is a good idea to equip the pump with a frost protection heater. Heating in pumps can be manual, thermostatically controlled, or operated remotely.

Remote monitoring and operation of our pumps is a modern solution to increase the usability of the equipment, enabling, for example, temperature and pressure monitoring. If desired, the pump can also be started and stopped remotely. In addition, automatic alarms sent to the customer are available for the pumps if the predetermined limit condition is met.

Efficient cleaning ensures flexible use

KAR-Lehtonen’s pump units are available with efficient compressed-air discharge, which drains the entire system, the pump, piping, and hoses. Efficient emptying removes all residues of the previous material so that the product being pumped can be replaced flexibly.

For seasonal use, the pump can be equipped with a flushing function to avoid corrosion, organic growth, or freezing, for example. In this case, a rinsing agent (e.g. glycol or oil) can be added manually or stored directly in the pump unit.

Personal service from start to finish

Kar-Lehtonen provides high-quality, ATEX-approved pumps designed to suit your needs and, if necessary, installed in place. Installation can also be provided outside of Finland.

If the customer’s premises is limited in size and the equipment cannot be placed there as a whole, we can install the equipment divided into parts. Sometimes needs take shape over time. In this case, the equipment can be modified afterwards, effortlessly on site at the customer’s premises.

We always offer in-depth implementation training for the efficient and safe use of the equipment at our premises in Lieto. For our customers located further away, we provide a comprehensive operating manual. If the customer acquires an installation service from us, we will arrange implementation training in connection with the installation.

KAR-Lehtonen – referenssit

Meillä on ollut KAR-Lehtosen kanssa pitkäaikainen ja hyvä yhteistyö ja ollaan oltu tyytyväisiä heidän palveluun. Me ollaan tienpäällystyksessä Suomessa merkittävä tekijä ja ajetaan päällystykseen bitumia. Heillä on meidän toiminnan onnistumiseen ratkaiseva merkitys ja ovat sen täyttäneet. Lisäksi kehitystä on heillä tehty koko ajan parempaan suuntaan.

Kokemukseni on erittäin positiivinen KAR-Lehtosen toiminnasta. Kehitimme yrityksellemme uutta toimintaa ja siihen liittyen tilasin KAR-Lehtoselta alipaine/-imusäiliön ja meillä ei ole aiempaa kokemusta kyseisenlaisesta säiliöstä. Saimme yhteistyössä toteutettua juuri meille parhaan laitteen. KAR-Lehtonen oikeasti toteuttaa sen mitä asiakas haluaa ja pystyy myös asiakkaalle uusissa jutuissa antamaan neuvoa.

Vi har haft ett mycket gott samarbete med KAR-Lehtonen i över tjugo år. De har byggt ett antal olje-/ bitumen- och gassläp åt oss. De har även färdigställt alla våra tankbilar. Vi är väldigt nöjda med deras service.

Did you know?

When using the pump unit to sell liquid, the measuring instrument must be MID approved.

MID approval is a requirement of the EU’s Measuring Instruments Directive to ensure greater accuracy in the distribution process: the previous tolerance of 2 per mill is now 0.2 per mill.

All KAR-Lehtonen pump units are also available with MID approval.
